Please check if the access token has expired or the credentials are not valid. If this issue persists, please also update power bi desktop to the latest version and check again.

It is exaclty because we updated Power Bi desktop version to the last one (September 2020) that we have our problems.

People in my organization still on August version don't face the problem. 


We bet on a regression on last Power BI release and it seems lots of people face this problem.


It is quite urgent matter as we are totally blind on last week metrics. 


Tks for helping!
